This November, I will be running for my third time for Team Lifeline in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon. I am running to raise money for Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping very sick children and their families. Chai Lifeline spares no expense in trying to alleviate some of the burden these families have, whether it’s physical, emotional, or financial, all for free. As a Chai Lifeline volunteer for over seven years, I have seen firsthand the unbelievable impact they have on families dealing with pediatric illness.
Chai Lifeline is an amazing organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 5,800 children and their families every year. Chai Lifeline´s programs and activities change their lives forever, returning joy and hope and enabling them to live full and happy lives despite the presence of illness. Its most famous program is Camp Simcha and its sister camp, Camp Simcha Special. Every year these two camps offer nearly 500 kids a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. I was privileged to be a counselor there, and it is literally the happiest place in the world. To get a better idea of what Chai Lifeline does for families, please watch the videos below. I know they will touch your heart the way they touched mine.
Every single dollar donated goes directly towards Chai Lifeline, enabling them to continue the amazing work they do.
Training is not easy, but neither is dealing with illness. If the children of Chai Lifeline can fight each day, if they can push themselves to go through hospital stays and treatments, I can do this for them. But I can't do this without your support. I need your help to raise as much money as possible for these kids. So please, push the donate button and help me put smiles on the faces of sick children. Let's do this together! Let's make dreams come true.
